Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. I had to post this
For all you doubting the authenticity of this letter, Snopes has confirmed that it is real.
This exchange appeared in the 15 June 2005 installment of "Ask Leslie," and advice column wtritten by librarian Leslie Potter for the Hays Daily News in Kansas.
Ms Potter stated:
"There were several staff members at the library's front desk the morning the "camel toads" letter arrived. When I opened and read it, I was thoroughly puzzled, as I had never heard of either camel toads or camel toes. But when I read it aloud to the staff, they practically started rolling on the floor. And their explanation is almost word-for-word what I used in my answer. I kept the original letter as a memento - and to show people who didn't believe it could be real!"
BTW, Wikipedia has a definitive description of "camel toe" here.
